On Mentoring

Halo Hippo (5)

“Show yourself in all respects a model of good deeds, and in your teaching show integrity, gravity,” 

~ Titus 2:7

While on a recent pilgrimage, attending daily mass, my homilist conveyed his concern for the lack of guidance from leading generations to emerging ones.  That younger, emerging generations are truly falling behind. Not just in what is needed to be fruitful, also what is needed to be a fulfilled, compassionate and ultimately wise steward of the world. They’ve been online since birth, being told they’re not smart enough, pretty enough, strong enough, fast enough, rich enough, loved enough.

We need to be there for them. To listen to them. To show them different, better ways to walk through this world, not relying on solving its problems with man’s ideas.  What are we doing to serve those who would benefit from what we know to be the truth? How are we helping others not be so in love with what this world wants that they have lost sight of what is truly important and available to them and others in God’s world and beyond?  Here’s a secret: they are waiting and wanting us to be there for them! So let’s be there for them and each other. I’m in. Who’s with me?
